Since I really dislike switching out purses, I wanted to do a reversible purse. My niece and I brainstormed, and this is the design we came up with. There’s one pocket on each side, so whatever side you’re using, you have one interior and one exterior pocket One side is a nice blend of neutral stripes, and the other is a sweet mint color. The lace on the pockets is vintage, and comes from my grandmother’s stash I inherited. I made the elastic loop closure & buttons in a thread color that matched the lace. This purse didn’t end up quite big enough for carrying all that I need for 2 munchkins when we’re out and about, so it’s for sale.
